The purpose of the Small Business Assistance Grant Program is to expand economic and entrepreneurial opportunity throughout the Commonwealth. The program is designed to complement and enhance the traditional public and private small business assistance network by providing technical assistance or training programs for underserved and disadvantaged businesses with 20 employees or fewer.

The total funding awarded in these grants was $1,720,000. Grant amounts ranged from $20,000 to $120,000.

MGCC would like to thank these organizations for their work and dedication in helping support small businesses through the Commonwealth.
